Made in iso

With this body of paintings created in 2020, Peter Brook reduces the pictorial plane down to its essential elements, eliminating all recognisable notations of landscape or biomorphic forms that have been an integral part of his art for the past 20 years. In also reducing his palette to monochromatic shades, white and iridescent silvers, Brook is exploring the effects of light reflecting off the painted surface.  

By segmenting the image through line and blocks of colour, Brook is also exploring the spatial relationships of pictorial planes and edges in their more elemental forms, referencing the intersection between the digital, analogue and spiritual.

The three initial images were exhibited in a group show in March 2020, and their titles refer to the hex codes that match their colour.  Most pieces created during 2020 were made while in isolation through government lockdowns to combat the spread of COVID-19, and have been titled ‘Made in iso’.
